Survey to help new parents adjust to Down’s syndrome diagnosis

Posted in Attitudes to disability, Support services by Matt at WelcometoIllinois on December 16, 2009

“Texas Tech University and Kansas State University researchers are seeking participants in an online survey to help develop support information and resources for parents of children with Down syndrome and the professionals who work with them” reports newswise.

The survey is available here and doesn’t take long to complete, depending on how much information you feel like sharing.

Researchers hope to gather information on how parents coped with their child’s diagnosis and how it impacted their relationship and outlook on the future in order to “pinpoint common practices in families who have successfully adjusted to a Down syndrome diagnosis”.
